republicans directed their sharpest lines of inquiry towards defense secretary nominee chuck hagel. it's too bad most of it had nothing to do with the against defense department or what chuck hagel's record really says about what he might do with the defense department or really what chuck hagel's record actually is. freshman senator and deputy gum shoe ted cruz looked for needles in a haystack, parsing fragments of hagel's quotes circa 2006. >> in a speech on the floor of the senate you referred to israel's military campaign against the terrorist group hezbollah as a "sickening slaughter." now, i would suggest the characterizations. do you think it's right that israel was creating a sickening slaughter as you said on the floor of the senate. >> i think, again, i would want to read all of it, what i said. >> what cruz and his cracker jack detective work did not reveal was the actual substance of hagel's quote, which reads in full.

senator chuck hagel. his confirmation hearings for defense secretary were not a breeze. the vote on his nomination has not yet happened. republicans in the senate are now hinting that they might even filibuster chuck hagel's nomination for defense, which of course sounds normal, because, you know, it seems like republicans filibuster anything now. but in fact that would not be normal that would be unprecedented if they do it. the reason republicans are even considering doing this unprecedented thing is because they cannot block chuck hagel's nomination by normal means. even though the republicans have persuaded lots of the senators on their own side to oppose his nomination, they are a minority. and they have not persuaded any democrats to oppose him at all, at least none that have come out so far and said they'll vote no. now, there was that strange effort which seems to have been a right-wing effort to make it look like there was a democratic and left-wing opposition to chuck hagel. but honestly, it was ridiculous. and we had to pull out the bullpucky siren. it was this really ham-han
secretary of defense, chuck hagel came under heavy fire during his hearings before the senate armed services committee. they held his feet to the fire and they asked him tough questions about his past controversial comments including anti-semitic positions. watch this. >> he said the jewish lobby, a lot of people i'm a united states senator. this pressure makes us do dumb things at times. you said the jewish lobby should not have been used and some other term. name one person in your opinion who is intimidated by the israel lobby in the united states senate. >> well, first. >> name one. >> i don't know. >> why would you say it? >> i didn't have in mind a specific person. >> do you agree that is a provocative statement that i can't think of a more provocative thing to say about the relationship between the united states and israel and the senate and congress in which you said. >> in a speech on the floor of the senate you referred to israel's military campaign against the terrorist group member's as a, quote, sickening slaughter. i would suggest the characterizations -- do you think it is rig
hagel's critics. >> that's pretty obvious that the political knives were out for chuck hagel. >> that's what you think it was? it was totally partisan? >> what disappointed me is they talked a lot about past quotes, but what about what a secretary of defense is confronting today? what about the war in afghanistan? what about the war on terrorism? what about the budget sequester? >> and baltimore parties all night after the ravens' victory over the 49ers. the highest rated super bowl in history produced enough power for beyonce, but what triggered that 34 minute blackout? >> as the nfl works feverishly to get the power back on. we have a moment as the players now beginning to realize this may be a little bit of a delay as different players are setting out on the field starting to stretch, starting to stay loose. really as bewilledered as the rest of the crowd here. >> did brotherly love prevail over sibling rivalry? >> going against these years, you had a feeling he would come roaring back. the team reflects his permit. they came roaring back. they have so much character. they're amazi

. but the threats from some lawmakers to potentially hold up a vote on chuck hagel on panetta's replacement pressed the pentagon to have panetta go up on to capitol hill to testify before the senate armed services committee next thursday. that is the same day that the senate is expected to vote on hagel's nomination. meanwhile, secretary of state john kerry was sworn in today during a private ceremony on capitol hill. he made headlines telling the boston globe president obama picked him for the job a week before susan rice withdrew her name over the benghazi controversy, which is a different timeline of what we have known before now. bret? jennifer griffin, live from the state department. thank you. 17% of male marines say they will leave the corps if women move in combat positions. in the survey done before the pentagon announced women could serve in combat, male marines worried about being falsely accused of sexual harassment or assault. >>> still ahead, remembering a new york original. first, report card on school choice.
